Buried single-crystal CoSi2 layers in silicon have been formed by high dose implantation of cobalt followed by annealing. These layers grow in both the (100) and (111) orientations—those in (111) have better crystallinity, but those in (100) are of higher electrical quality. Electrical transport measurements on the layers give values for the resistance ratios and superconducting critical temperatures that are better than the best films grown by conventional techniques and comparable to bulk CoSi2.

    CoSb3 skutterudites are established thermoelectric materials in the 500-800K temperature range. Undoped and Bi filled CoSb3 samples were synthesized by induction melting-annealing process and phase confirmation done by X-Ray diffraction. The role of bismuth as a filler in CoSb3 was investigated...

    We report on the evolution of equilibrium magnetoresistive (MR) 1/f noise due to the exchange-biased magnetic layer in MgO-based magnetic tunnel junctions as a function of annealing time at 380 and 430 °C. The resistance susceptibility and MR noise are observed to increase rapidly with...

    The thermocapillary effect is used to explain the phenomenon of shrinkage observed during the annealing of YBa[sub 2]Cu[sub 3]O[sub 7-δ] components. The proposed model can be used to estimate the characteristic time taken for pores to reach the surface of ceramic samples.
